About the artwork
The colour field communicates emotion and states of mind through its character and permeability, while the vertical lines communicate feelings of loftiness and spirituality, extending upwards beyond human reach, as if heaven-bound. Hong's intricately written calligraphy contrasts against the bright, bold colours, invoking a sense of balance and peace amidst the chaos.
